Old Woman's Creek has not only marches, but a Lake Erie Beach and an estuary perfect for paddling. The trails wind up hill and down through the marsh where you can view waterfowl. The beach is little known so the sand is often empty and the waves crash on shore - this is not a swimming beach, however. Maybe the best time I've had at OWC is a canoe trip through the estuary which was part of an art class that took us out among the white water lilies for a first-hand drawing lesson. Check their website for classes and special exhibits.

So close to the wonderful cities of Vermilion and Huron, yet the feel of being at a wonderful State Park with well maintained paths with lots of small wildlife and birds galore.

Old Woman Creek has wonderful walking nature trails. It's not all flat like Sheldon Marsh. One of the trails goes up through the hills. There is a fantastic observation deck overlooking the creek. The visitors center is nice too (when it's open).

What a beautiful place to paddle a canoe. Kids of all ages would enjoy the interactive wildlife displays

Nice place to see. Just keep your visit brief or the security team will be hauling your butt outta there. Don't even think of taking a lawn chair!
